Speed Racer Movie Summary

Speed Racer lives for racing. His parents own Racer Motors, and his brother, Rex, whom Speed idolizes, is a world-class driver. Rex’s car crashes while racing in the Casa Cristo 5000, and he dies. Speed grows up, and begins a racing career too that takes the racing world by storm.

Eventually, Speed attracts the attention of E.P. Arnold Royalton, the owner of Royalton Industries. He’s a corrupt man, and tempts Speed with a life of luxury if he signs with him. Speed declines because Pops distrusts big corporations.

Of course, this annoys Royalton, and he lets it be known that corporations, including his, rig the races for their benefit because only money matters. To punish Speed, Royalton orders his drivers to make Speed crash, and then he sues Racer Motors for intellectual property infringement.
